Call To Worship

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds, we are healed.

16 “For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

    Loved the music, Loved the videos of our congregation declaring the good news of the resurrection. Loved to see the videos ending with George Peabody which is so special and meaningful because of his longtime service to Faith Church. Love you George! Loved the great message by Pastor Jonathan on Genesis 22 showing Abraham’s faith in reasoning that God could raise the dead, and his obedience to carry out the sacrifice of his only son, proving his faith. Tying this in with God sending his own son, the Lord Jesus and sacrificing him on the cross for us, But then there was His resurrection. Pastor Josh did a fantastic job putting this together, such an encouragement to see everyone giving testimony, Very powerful, Praise God for taking care of us!

    Truly a joyous celebration of Easter for me from North Carolina!! How I love to hear Ken pray; Pastor Jonathan preach; and what a thrill to see so many of my old and new friends exclaiming “He is Risen Indeed!” Thank you Josh for the wonderful musical selections but that one was truly special.
